Naming Your Blog

Naming anything is one of the biggest tasks we have to undertake, whether it’s your children, your car, your partner, lol because once you name anything, that becomes the future of that person or thing.  The same is important for naming your blog.  Once you name it, it becomes a part of your brand. Some bloggers like to use their name like me but name what they are going to teach whilst others focus on naming something to do with their nice.

At this point, we have already looked at your brand in detail, so we have a good idea of your niche, your target audience, your values, motivation, objectives, products, etc.  So we just need to put all that information into a name.

The best way to come up with a name is to brainstorm ideas.   

Below is an example of how I brainstormed my name for my survival blog. I ask myself a series of questions.   

1. What is your blog going to be about in one word? Or what will your posts consist of?

10. Can you use it?

Once you have a couple of names that you really like you need to check that the name is available. Type the name in Google Search and look to see if anyone else is using that name specifically. Take a good look at there websites.

IF SOMEONE IS ALREADY USING THE NAME THAT YOU WANT THEN YOU CANT USE IT! SIMPLE

Once you have a unique name then try your favourite names as a domain name,

  • do you like how it looks?
  • Would it be easy to remember?
  • Will it be easy to say?
  • How long is it?
  • Is it easy to spell? 

Look at the three examples below.  The best one would be the first one because the second one is too long and open to mistakes and the third may be difficult for some people to spell.  Anything too difficult your readers will lose interest fast.

howwouldwesurvive.com

whenshftwhatwilltattydo.com

survivalistrant.co.uk

Your domain name also forms part of your email address, for example:-

tatty@howwouldwesurvive.com.

tatty@whenshftwhatwilltattydo.com

tatty@survivalistrant.co.uk

Sometimes shorter or easier blog names is better when you are asking people to visit your site via Twitter when you only have so many characters or giving the address over the phone.
